There is much for which to be thankful.
Gratefulness is an area I have made a special effort to improve.
It is a choice, you know!
How am I doing?
Some days, not so swell!
But I keep making the effort.
This is the 3rd Thanksgiving Day without Les.
The first one is a blur, as it was only a few days after his departure to his heavenly home.
These past two years have had their moments;
good ones, bad ones.
But through them all, God has been faithful, just as He promised.
I am thankful for my family and friends who have aided this journey.
I am thankful for the peace that God has given me.
I am thankful for my health.
I am thankful my carpal tunnel and ulna nerve surgeries were a success.
(sleeping with no braces and no tingling hands is such a relief!)
I am thankful for all the extra time I have been enjoying with my daddy.
He takes such good care of me!!
I am thankful for being able to lead Bible study classes.
I am thankful for the women (and some men!) who come to those classes.
I am thankful my sister has retired and we can do more things together.
I am thankful Stacey and Mike live close by.
Les and I lived away some and it is hard.
I am thankful for the precious grandchildren they have given me.
I am thankful to be able to see them grow and learn.
I am thankful for my “old” friends and my “new” friends.
(You know who you are!)
I am thankful for my relationship with Jesus which assures me I don’t have to do any of this alone.
I am thankful God loves me unconditionally.
Otherwise, I’d be toast!!!!
This could go on and on, but I won’t bore you.
Just one more thing! LOL!
I am thankful for you;
for reading my blog;
for your kind comments, emails, and words of encouragement;
for letting me share my heart as it heals.
Let’s make every day a day of thanksgiving.
There is ALWAYS something for which to be thankful.
Lots of love, Sharon
